Nurses at a local health facility refused to “waste a test” on him after he experienced flu-like symptoms akin to flu or strep throat. His local walk-in clinic did not have any COVID-19 tests available. After all other tests came back negative, Hickman was treated for bronchitis and told to self-quarantine at home with his parents, who were at the time asymptomatic and not required to quarantine.
Hickman tested positive for COVID-19 just last Friday. He and his parents are being treated and are feeling better, but are required to self-quarantine until April.
It is currently unknown when Hickman traveled to Walt Disney World Resort, what parks he visited, or where he stayed throughout his visit.
